A short time ago this afternoon Rangers hosted St Mirren at Ibrox for the latest Premiership encounter.

Going into the match, history was clearly in our favour. At Ibrox we were unbeaten against St Mirren in the previous ten encounters, and we have only lost twice in 21 meetings in total, so with confidence and performances growing for the side under manager Steven Gerrard, hopes were high of another positive result.

I’m not sure you can call it a walk in the park, especially as we again went down to ten men as Ross McCrorie saw a straight red card at the half-hour mark of the match, but by then we already had the two-goal advantage thanks to efforts from Alfredo Morelos and Connor Goldson, so it was pretty comfortable.

A steady and organised showing led us to victory, the only disappointing thing is had we had our full complement of men the scoreline could’ve been far more impressive with the number of chances we had across the game.

Three points are three points though, it’s another W in the column for the season and marks our first league win following Aberdeen, so we roll on to the next one looking to keep this form going.

 

One Reply to “Morelos Does It Again As Rangers Take Another Win”

  • It seems that instead of of looking at their own deficiencies the Celtic fans are choosing to throw mud at anyone with a Rangers connection ,this time it is Steven Naismith for his exchange with Johnny Hayes,but it would be more appropriate for their vitriol to be directed to the governance of the club as it seems that they have left Brendan Rodgers high and dry with regards to maintaining the high quality of playing staff at the club,I am no expert by any means but it looks very much like Hearts,Hibs ,Rangers and possibly Aberdeen could give Celtic big problems this season,and if an improved Rangers are going to make any impact on Celtic then the damage that these other clubs can inflict on Celtic WILL BE SIGNIFICANT !!
